Kura: Japanese Traditional Warehouses in Shizuoka Prefecture 17: Wagura izakaya in Shimada City!

“Kura” (in Japanese 蔵 or 倉) means “warehouse” or “Storehouse”.
In traditional Japan, especially during the Edo Era, as most of buildings and urba/village structures were made of wood, fires were the bane of society by and large.
However well-protected a fire would consume a house or buildings and all its properties within minutes.
Hence a special building or warehouse was needed to protect goods and properties against such a catastrophe.
But erecting a storehouse solely made of concrete, stones and some metal cost a vast amount of silver and gold and only rich merchants and nobility could afford them. Even castles could not be built entirely of stone then.

The other day I had arrived early for an appointment in front of Shimada JR station north exit and dedcided to a walk around the neighborhood, hoping against the odds to find something new and interesting in spite of visiting the place at least once a week!
Out of the blue, figuratively as it was almost dusk and evrything was turning shades of grey and blue, I found one large building housing local izakaya. My eyes were attracted by the traditional lattice design/namako at the lower part of the walls. The building itself was not a kura but my curiosity kept me looking beyond to the next house… and there for all to see stood a splendid kura! Why the heck hadn’t I noticed before!

SN3O0201

I probably had never bothered to look up to discover this beautiful window!

SN3O0200

One other reason was because the whole edifice had been transformed into a traditional izakaya restaurant and the door hadN’t attracted my attention util then
Mind you it is in a back street you do need a purpose to visit otherwise!

SN3O0199

Roofing perfectly maintained!
obviously the neighboring building must have belonged to a rich family who protected their belongings indie that kura!

SN3O0198

Its lower wall is also designed with a namako-style lattice pattern!

SN3O0202

SN3O0196

Great atmosphere!

Angel Trumpets in Shizuoka City: Beautiful, but Beware!

Some flowers, like many other plants, might be beautiful and enticing, but very often it is a good idea to admire form a distance!

SN3O0209

This flower does have a great name, at least for religion-conscious people: Angel Trumpet!
But in fact it has little angelic about itself!

SN3O0204

There’s a small Shinto Shrine across from Parco Department Store in Aoi Ku, Shzuoka City, called Kogisho Shrine, famous in town for housing regular flea markets and other events, although it is also notorious for its use by smokers who should have a look at the back entrance where the above small torii gate stands!

SN3O0205

They will find this flowering tree just behind the torii gate on the right!

SN3O0208

Local worshipers use the tree for motive messages!

SN3O0211

My impression is that it is used more or less to hide the drab neighborhood!

SN3O0207

These long unopened blossoms do look like long yellow cigars!
Another reason for smokers to sit down under them! LOL

SN3O0210

now, do have a good look at their definition on WIKIPEDIA

You will find out that although they are used as medicine in some places, the whole plant is poisonous!!
Still, the flowers are beautiful!

SN3O0193

I found this comparatively middle-sized kura in Kanaya, Shimada City during my recent Tea Festival coverage!

SN3O0194

It looked old enough although in good repair. Only the windows showed its age as the concept of the walls in base stones and and hard concrete block made it very resistant!

SN3O0195

An old Japanese talkative lady very proud of the more than the 90 years she lived in the city informed us that this kura was owned by the Matsumura Family apparently the richest in Kanaya.
Since she told us she used to play nearby as a kid we can imagine the age of the edifice!

SN3O0196

A very sturdy and well-maintained kura still used as a shed!

Utogi Kagura Spring Festival in Utogi, Shizuoka City, with the Wasabi & Tea Farmers!

On the first Saturday of April and second Saturday of October are held the Spring and October Utogi KaguraFestivals/有東木神楽祭 at Shirahige Shrine/白髭神社 in Utogi, Aoi Ku, Shizuoka City/静岡市葵区有東木 by the local wasabi and tea farmers!
Yesterday as I happened to help a French reporter in her interviewing local wasabi farmers whose abode stands just beside the Shinto Shrine, I had the chance to say “hello” to the participants in their company!

SN3O0060

The stairs to the shrine up to a steep slope. We already are at about 600 meters altitude!

SN3O0061

That shrine had been erected no less than 500 years ago when only green tea was cultivated in this area, up in the maountains on the right bank of the Abe River!
And the oldest cedar tree rising in front was already found in local records 720 year ago. Its height is presently 35 meters, its circumference 6.80 meter and its branches spread as far as 15 meters!

SN3O0062

The official Utogi Village Shrine! Shirahige Shrine/白髭神社/The “white Beard” Shinto Shrine!

SN3O0063

The torii/鳥居/sacred birds gate found at the entrance of all Shinto Shrines in Japan!

SN3O0064

The cedar trees’ invasion of the stair stones is a sure indication of the shrine’ age!

SN3O0065

I managed to sandwich the visit on both sides of the interview which allowed me to the preparations of the dance!

SN3O0066

Practice on the Japanese drum!

SN3O0070

Practicing the songs!

SN3O0071

Fires had been lit for seabreams to grill. Seabreams are a symbol of prosperity even up in a Japanese mountain!

SN3O0072

More cooking was done nearby, especially “oden”!

SN3O0089

Even at this time of the year nights can turn cold!

SN3O0073

Local people took the opportunity to socialize!

SN3O0074

Salt and sake offerings to the shrine!

SN3O0075

The dancers taking some hot food and Japanese sake after the practice!

SN3O0076

When I came back later the seabreams were grilled to perfection!

SN3O0091

And the dancing was in full swing!

SN3O0084

Don’t worry, the sabers are fake! But they weren’t in Edo Times!

SN3O0086

A second dance was performed with bells instead of sabers!

SN3O0076

Naturally I was offered a taste of these succulent seabreams (and plenty of hot sake!)!

SN3O0090

And even more with hot sake!

Looking forward to the Autumn Festival!

Sushi: Uogashi Stand at Parche Supermarket (Part 1)!

If you go to the Supermarket in Parche inside Shizuoka JR Station, that is, through the middle corridor leading you between the track entrances you will eventually reach a large stand just beyond the the wasabi and the green tea stand held bu Uogashi.
Uogashi is a famous sushi company from Numazu City with sushi restaurants in Shizuoka City and even in Yokohama!
They incidentally also have a restaurant in the Acty section of Shizuoka Station.
This is an introductory report as I succeeded in convincing their manager to interview them at work!

SN3O0063

The left side of the big stand!

SN3O0064

Suhi nigiri individually wrapped and sold separately with or without wasabi. I haven’t counted yet, but there must be over 3 dozen different varieties!
Just have a good look and compose you lunch/dinner/snack!

SN3O0065

Tamagoyaki. Inari zushi, Egg roll sushi, etc.!

SN3O0066

Ssuhi assortments and sushi bento at very reasonable prices!
The reason for they freshness and reasonable prices is that Uogashi gets most its fish directly from Fishermen in the Prefecture and elsewheer!

SN3O0067

Te-maki zuhi/hand-made conical sushi rolls!
The seaweeed is being kept dry in a special wrapping until you open it yourself!

SN3O0068

More extremely reasonable sushi sets!
They might be cheap, but you will not find the same quality for that price in Tokyo!
Great for travelers to buy before boarding a train or going to their hotels!

SN3O0070

Rolls, rolls, rolls!
Don’t worry, next time there will be no plastic interfering with the pictures!

SN3O0069

More sushi sets for less than 8.50 US$/6.5 Euros a pack!

SN3O0071

Of course you can order even bigger sets for parties!

Look forward to the next report!
